Welcome to the Division of Public Health Medicine

The Division of Public Health Medicine (PHM) coordinates the School’s contributions to undergraduate teaching in the medical and rehabilitation sciences in the faculty as well as the M Med specialisation programme in Public Health Medicine. The joint appointments in the School (Public Health Medicine specialists, registrars and other staff) provide technical support to the Provincial Health Department through the Health Impact Assessment Directorate and its related health department structures.  The Division is thus closely integrated into the service platform in the Western Cape both through its postgraduate and undergraduate teaching, preparing students for the challenges of working in the South African health system.

You can find more information about our staff, the courses we teach, the postgraduate students in our Division, our areas of research and service, upcoming events and links.
